LECOM Health acquires Corry Memorial Hosptial, Visiting Nurses Association of Erie County and Presque Isle Nursing and Rehabilitation Center
The addition of Corry Memorial Hospital to LECOM Health became a benefit to the Corry community, as the hospital provided access to LECOM health physicians and medical services. With the addition of CMH to LECOM Health, the system now reaches into eastern Erie County, as well as parts of Warren and Crawford counties, which are served by CMH.
LECOM Health also acquired the 106-year-old Visiting Nurses Association of Erie County (VNA) along with a second skilled-nursing facility, now known as LECOM Nursing & Rehabilitation. Both organizations play an important role in the continuum of care that has been a growing part of the superlative health care provided by the only osteopathic academic health center in America. The VNA is renowned for its home health care services, but the organization also plays a significant part in hospice care and veterans care. Another experienced health care constant, LECOM Nursing & Rehabilitation, is the only skilled-nursing center in Erie that provides ventilator services.
